Coquina Cottage, Circa 1935, is a Tybee beach cottage recently restored decorated lovingly with an eclectic mix of fun, new furnishings, and rejuvenated vintage finds throughout the home. The adorable house nods to the past while offering a unique, charming beach vibe throughout the home. A Tybee cottage lover's dream come true.

The home is owned by New York Times bestselling author Mary Kay Andrews, who offers an autographed novel for each stay! Mary Kay Andrews finds thrift store finds and estate sale antiques that are lovingly restored and add to the eclectic beachy feel throughout her homes.

The 2-story cottage has five bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and room to sleep up to 12 guests. The first floor is home to the living area with large windows that bring tons of natural light. The living room features a sleeper sofa and a large flat-screen TV. The adjoining dining room has ample seating for up to 10 and connects with the beautiful all-new kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped and features stainless steel appliances, a farm sink, and a vintage-style dining booth to enjoy a quick meal. There is also a gas grill located in the backyard - perfect for your cookouts! The downstairs two bedrooms have a king-size bed and two twin beds - and share the bathroom with a walk-in shower. Also on the first floor is a powder room, half bathroom, and full-size washer and dryer.

The second floor is home to the remaining three bedrooms and a comfortable sitting area with a large flat-screen TV and a delightful screened porch for sipping iced tea on a warm summer's night. Bedroom 3 has a Queen size bed, Bedroom 4 has a King size bed with a TV, and Bedroom 5 has 2 Twin beds. There are two full bathrooms on the second, the first with an all-new walk-in shower; the second has a vintage clawfoot tub with a shower.

The cottage offers a beautiful mid-island location. Perfect for a more residential feel while still offering easy access to the beach, which is just a short stroll away. This road is also considered part of Tybee's bike trail. Parking is available for up to 5 cars.

Fans of Mary Kay Andrews will love the vintage furnishings and antique touches that are a favorite part of the MKA Collection of renovated Tybee Island beach cottages, including Ebbtide, a seven-bedroom home that sleeps up to 16, and Breeze Inn, a 3 Bedroom that sleeps up to 8. When combined with Coquina Cottage, there is a total of 15 bedrooms and enough space for up to 36 guests.
